# Who chooses test questions in the review queue?

Some questions in the review queue are there only to test the reviewer. Who chooses those?

• I think a side-effect (even if occasionally contentious answers/questions occur) is "to keep reviewers on their toes" (not an auto pilot). I've been very occasionally off put by what I think to be a poorly chosen model for such reviews, but I think it does more good than harm. – amWhy Aug 8 '17 at 23:30
• All of the proposed edits that were tests that I've ever seen were edits that were absurd. I've seen several tests in the review queue where I voted to close a question and I was told that it was a test and I passed. I've seen only one where I voted to leave a question open that turned out to be a test and it said I failed, and not only that I failed but that the question was seriously flawed. I read the question patiently and carefully with that in mind and continued to think it should be reopened. Conjoin that with the overwhelming fact that decisions to close questions$\,\ldots\qquad$ – Michael Hardy Aug 9 '17 at 0:33
• $\ldots\,$on mse are generally done ineptly except in the most obvious cases, and it's clear that the "test" is garbage. – Michael Hardy Aug 9 '17 at 0:33

• Don't get me wrong; but currently, I think the current "suggested edit" tests are so absurd that only a zombie can miss it's absurdity. Are there any ways that the pool of potential test questions in the "suggested edit" queue" which are actually significantly improved by an editor, so that those rejecting it (in a test) would see $$\bf{\Large\text{STOP!}}$$ – amWhy Aug 9 '17 at 17:21
